Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Ilya Kovalchuk and Andrei Loktionov scored less than 2 1/2 minutes apart in the third period to rally the New Jersey Devils to a 3-2 win over the Washington Capitals at Verizon Center.

Patrik Elias added a shorthanded goal while assisting on Kovalchuk's game- winner to help the Devils halt a two-game skid. Martin Brodeur made 17 saves in the victory.

The Capitals were dealt a second straight defeat following a season-high three-game win streak despite a 34-save effort from Braden Holtby. Mathieu Perrault and Mike Ribeiro potted power-play goals in the setback, with Troy Brouwer assisting on both markers.
